Brook: Hatton is No Walkover, Winner Heading To a Shot

Sheffield's Kell Brook insists he is focused on beating Matthew Hatton and moving closer to a world title shot.

Welterweight Brook, 25, is undefeated from 26 fights but faces the toughest test of his career on Saturday when he meets the former European champion.

Brook has been touted as a future opponent for Amir Khan, but refuses to be distracted away from Hatton.

"He is a dangerous opponent and I'm full of respect for him. If I take him lightly, he will beat me," said Brook.

He added: "I have to be 100% focused on him and I'll let others do the talking about these fights in the future, but right now it's all about Hatton. Fights with world champions are what every boxer dreams of and I'm no different.

"But at no point have I taken my eye off the ball during the build-up to this fight, even when people have asked me about Khan and the rest.

"Matthew Hatton is no walkover. A lot of people are saying I'm the favourite, but I haven't slacked from any kind of training because anything can happen in boxing.

"Whoever wins this fight is going on to a world title so it's going to come down to who the better fighter is and who the number one in the division is. I believe it's going to be me.

"I will enter the ring as the hometown favourite and leave that ring with a great win and ready to fight for a world title."

More than 9,000 tickets have already been sold for the clash, which takes place at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Saturday.

Two average fighters going at it, might be entertaining but no legit world title implications.

[QUOTE=Scrubber]laugh all you want but hatton sad as he is can win this fight. brook is marginal at best and a brit. even fight.[/QUOTE] This is just another stepping stone fight, Hatton offers very little threat to Brook. Hatton will be very lucky to see the end of round twelve.

tired of brook not stepping up, hoping for hatton upset..

I'm a Kell Brook fan but he needs to step up after this. Go after Mike Jones, Malignaggi-Sencehnko winner, Brad Solomon (where's he been?), or the Guerrero-Aydin winner.
